Surface-piercing profiler deployed

Winch Work

Researchers monitor the deployment of a SeaCycler, part of a Global Subsurface Hybrid Profiler Mooring installed at Station Papa in the Northeast Pacific in the summer of 2013.  The SeaCycler is a winch that will lie horizontally in the water at a depth of about 150 meters. It will move the profiler, which carries instruments to measure current and other water conditions, up and down in the water to within a few meters of the surface. The mooring is part of the Ocean Observatories Initiative, a multi-institution effort to measure ocean conditions at key sites around the world.
